The 14th Century Poet Put It This Way

Consider how corrupted the human mind can become. I use the word "corrupted" in the sense that we are born with the freedom of the mind to do, be, and have anything we want. As we grow, societal pressures and "norms" (whatever that means these days), make us bury all of the things we long for. But the truth is, we still all have within us the dreams and ability to have everything we want.

We sense that there is some sort of spirit that loves the
Birds and animals and the ants.
Perhaps the same one who gave a radiance to you in your mother's womb.
Is it logical that you would be walking around entirely orphaned now?
The truth is you turned away yourself, and decided to go into the dark alone.
Now you are tangled up in others, and have forgotten what you once knew.
And that's why everything you do has some weird failure in it.

Set yourself free.

I used to pop in and read your BLOG secretly...never leaving a comment. But I came back today to find NOTHING new for 2009? Nothing since November?

What happened? I think your BLOG is well organized and well done.
You write well. It was thoughtful and often provoked a smile from me, too. Inspiring.

I DO understand taking breaks from writing, believe me. So...maybe you'll back.

Yeah I agree with you, but you just said we have all the freedom to choose, so it is still up to us if we want to follow the norms or what the society will tell us for at the end it is still ourselves that we are going to face in every decision that we made, not other people. By the way I like that poem, wish all people will realized that.
